EAU CLAIRE — A free outdoor family show by Dennis Warner will highlight the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Summer Session Programs for the week of July 1.
His concert will begin Monday at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain: Schofield Auditorium). Refreshments will be sold. Audience members are invited to bring blankets or folding chairs for lawn seating.
Blending acoustic folk-country music and humor, Dennis Warner presents upbeat, up-tempo kids and family concerts popular in well over 100 cities each year - from small village gatherings in Alaska to huge auditoriums in Florida. His credits include hosting "Jammin' with Dennis Warner," a special live radio show broadcast by National Public Radio affiliates, and featured spots on NPR's "Great Acoustics Live!" and "River City Folk." He has been invited to perform at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Warner has been honored as a finalist in the Emerging Songwriters Showcase at the internationally renowned Kerrville Folk Fest, and he has appeared many times at The Bluebird Cafe, the Nashville club known for discovering new and exciting songwriters. His fifth album, "My World," features strong lyrics, solid guitar work, and performances by Prudence Johnson and Peter Ostroushko.
